Some onions in the garage
It had a messy background so I've applied a textured layer.
Many thanks for clicks and comments yesterday for Taking a closer look Glad you found the distortions as interesting as I had when I spotted them.
Thanks for looking

From the thumbnail I thought it was an arty manipulation of a dragon emerging from an egg (I've just had my eyes tested too!Wink). Coming in (although it isn't what I thought it was), I'm not disappointed a lovely image, well worked. Smile
